How can I determine if the kind of business I want to operate is permitted at a given location?

Planning Department staff will be able to answer your questions in regard to permitted uses of land. Some uses are permitted 'by right,' which means that no special approvals are needed, while others may be 'conditionally permitted.' Conditionally permitted uses of land generally require Planning Commission review and approval. Call 216-291-4878 or email Planning or contact Tim Boland, Economic Development Director or Brian Anderson, Business Development Manager for more information.
